Fudge is a smooth and creamy treat – no matter what toppings or fillings it has, it’s hard to resist the texture and flavor that freshly made fudge offers. It’s an indulgence that you can afford for yourself or as a gift. There are also vegan-friendly varieties that make fantastic gifts for your friends and family who follow that dietary lifestyle. Here is how fudge is made.
A Quick History Lesson
Fudge is part of Baltimore’s food-based history! Before 1886, there wasn’t much to be said about fudge. At first, it was produced in a small grocery store local to Baltimore, and sold for about forty cents per pound. The original batches of fudge were incorrectly prepared caramels. That’s also how fudge got its name – it was invented by being “fudged”! Despite these humble beginnings, fudge has grown to be an American favorite in the decades since.
The Delicious Ingredients
Fudge helps elevate almost any dessert. Quick, which ones can you think of off the top of your head? Cookies, cake, and ice cream all three benefit from fudge, adding another dimension of flavor. Still, you might wonder what infuses it with the magic that amazes your taste buds. Milk, cream, sugar, and other flavors are combined to make something special; add heat, and these ingredients are transformed into something delicious! Making the fudge is a bit tricky, though: if it’s undercooked, it will have a grainy texture because there wasn’t enough heat applied to make everything melt. Overheating the fudge can burn it and make it inedible.
